Shaken, not stirred

Acid test for the Polo GTI R5: Third place for Miguel Zaldivar sr. at the “Transchaco”

One of the toughest tests for man and machine: Miguel “Miki” Zaldivar sr./Fernando Mussano (PY/RA) battled their way to third place with the Polo GTI R5 at the Transchaco Rally. Zaldivar/Mussano won six of the 26 special stages, which, with their deep fesh-fesh, rough scree and a whole lot of sand, were similar to those encountered at the Dakar Rally in South America. Having fought back from eleventh place overall, they narrowly missed out on second place by just 13 minutes – next to nothing at the “Transchaco”. Round six of this season’s Paraguayan Rally Championship featured 788.35 kilometres against the clock, spread over three days. Victory went to Alejandro Galanti/Marcelo Toyotoshi (PY/PY, Toyota Etios R5).
